The Political Economy of Tax Incentives for Investment in the Dominican Republic
Christian Daude, Hamlet Gutiérrez, Ángel Melguizo
Tax incentives can be a useful tool to stimulate investment in developing countries. However, in these countries interest groups often are able to exert considerable influence in its management, if not its design. From a power-based approach to the political economy of tax reform we find how...

Productive Capabilities: An Empirical Investigation of their Determinants
Christian Daude, Arne Nagengast, José Ramón Perea
Recent contributions to the growth literature have argued that the structure of an economy, as measured by its productive capabilities, is a key determinant for inter-country differences in development. Productive capabilities have been shown to be highly predictive of future economic growth,...

Capital Flows in Asia-Pacific
Margit Molnar, Yusuke Tateno, Amornrut Supornsinchai
The Asia-Pacific region has long been prone to volatile capital flows that have posed a challenge for authorities to cope with and occasionally led to payment difficulties dragging down exchange rates and spilling over to the real economy. The recent global crisis repeated past history,...

On the Relevance of Relative Poverty for Developing Countries
Christopher Garroway, Juan Ramón de Laiglesia
Poverty is typically measured in different ways in developing and advanced countries. The majority of developing countries measure poverty in absolute terms, using a poverty line determined by the monetary cost of a predetermined basket of goods. In contrast, most analyses of poverty in...

Jason Gagnon, David Khoudour-Castéras
Although South-South migrants face much of the same discrimination and integration challenges as their South-North counterparts, South-South flows need to be analysed from a different standpoint. An investigation of immigrant experience in West Africa, with particular focus on Ghana, shows that...

Anna Jankowska, Arne Nagengast, José Ramón Perea
Rapid and sustained economic growth in the emerging world has brought new members, notably China, into the group of middle-income countries. Reaching this level of income, however, has historically presented countries with a new set of challenges to development, resulting in slowing growth and...

Are Workers' Remittances Relevant for Credit Rating Agencies?
Rolando Avendaño, Norbert Gaillard, Sebastián Nieto Parra
Remittance flows are an important source of financing for developing countries. In addition to the microeconomic impact at the household level, remittances have grown into an important pillar of macroeconomic stability, reducing volatility of external flows, lessening the probability of current...

Sebastián Nieto Parra, Javier Santiso
In this paper we test the impact of elections on fiscal policy in Latin American economies in comparison to OECD countries over the period 1990-2006. We find that in Latin American countries, the average primary balance declines by an amount close to 0.7 per cent of GDP during an election year,...

Iliana Olivié

Herding in Aid Allocation
Emmanuel Frot, Javier Santiso
Aid ineffectiveness, fragmentation, and volatility have already been highlighted by scholars and OECD studies. Far fewer studies have been devoted to another problem of capital flows: herding behaviour. Building upon a methodology applied to financial markets, where herding is a common feature,...

Are all Migrants Really Worse off in Urban Labour Markets?
Jason Gagnon, Theodora Xenogiani, Chunbing Xing
The rapid and massive increase in rural-to-urban worker flows to the coast of China has drawn recent attention to the welfare of migrants working in urban regions, particularly to their working conditions and pay; serious concern is raised regarding pay discrimination against rural migrants....

Taking Stock of the Credit Crunch
Andrew Mold, Sebastian Paulo, Annalisa Prizon
This paper examines how the different forms of development finance for low-income countries are likely to be affected by the global financial crisis, principally through reductions in remittances, aid flows and FDI. It argues that the channels of transmission of the crisis for particular...

Extracting the Maximum from the EITI
Dilan Ölcer
For many countries rich in oil, gas and minerals, development remains an elusive goal. The rich get richer, the poor stay poor, inequality rises, economies stagnate, corruption flourishes and conflict deepens. The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) has helped to direct...

Development Aid and Portfolio Funds
Emmanuel Frot, Javier Santiso
This paper presents stylised facts about development aid and capital flows to developing countries. It compares their volumes and volatilities and finds that foreign aid is not the major source of finance for these countries any more, though not for all regions. The expansion of private flows...

Who Saw Sovereign Debt Crises Coming?
Sebastián Nieto Parra
This paper studies sovereign debt crises during the period 1993-2006 through the prism of the primary sovereign bond market. Two conclusions emerge. First, investment banks price sovereign default risk well before crises occur and before investors detect default risk. Between three and one...
